No reset button but you need to make sure the brush roll housing is on securely and also the bag unit as well, because there is a safety switch that wont let the machine turn on if either one of those two things are off. I'm assuming you took the front of the machine off to get the string out. try taking that piece of and on again, the metal latch that holds it on should be turned until it stops.

Tip

How To Attach Carpet Shampooer To Your Kirby Generation 4 (G4) Upright.


Hello,

This is an excellent, easy to follow video presentation of attaching the carpet cleaner to your Kirby Generation 3 Upright Vacuum Cleaner. Please note that the model being used in the video is a newer model named the Sentria, but the process of attaching the carpet extractor attachment is identical on the Kirby Sentria and the Kirby Generation 4. The only major difference is that the Generation 4 does not have the lever that extends out to turn the belt to off. On the Generation 4 this is dont by turning the entire white square with the Kirby logo on it in the front of the vacuum cleaner.

Please feel free to ask for a repair clarification if you have a question on how to attach the carpet shampooer. I'm always, more then happy to answer any follow up questions there may be.
